    So I know loopOut has always been temperamental, but I cannot get it to work at all. Does this seem right to anyone?:

    I have never considered loopOut() to be tempermental. You just have to feed it what it wants! For a loop that repeates, I usually have three keyframes. Beginning, end, and beginning again. And I also usually specify what kind of loopOut it is. cycle vs. continue

    Whenever you apply loopOut() to the time remapping property of a nested comp the frame at the last keyframe will always be blank.

    To fix this, simply goto the last keyframe, hit page-up to move the CTI one frame earlier in the comp, add a new keyframe for time remapping and then delete the lat keyframe — note, you cannot simply nudge the last keyframe up one frame.

    It should now loop the way you expected.

    thanks, I’m aware of that trick – hopefully you can see that I tried that in the visual? Might not be clear

    Sorry, I did miss that.

    It could be that AE is having an issue with cached frames… have you tried edit>purge>all memory & disk cache?

    Yes I tried that too, and it gives mixed results, which makes me think it might be a cache issue. I use an external SSD for the media cache, maybe I’ll try a different one
